Beech Grove, IN – Sara Kifer, an Indiana teacher who is currently suspended, will go to court related to a No Contact Order based on allegations of her stalking a student last year at Beech Grove High School.
A investigation into Kifer’s behavior towards an unnamed student was begun by by the Department of Education after a student claimed that she fell in love with him during his senior year. The student reportedly said that he ignored her advances at first, but eventually felt it necessary to turn letters Kifer had allegedly written to him over to his school counselor.
The school responded by suspending Kifer immediately and a No Contact Order was issued by a county judge. According to the victim, neither of these actions – or his graduation – were a deterrent. When he started college that fall, Kifer reportedly began trying to reach him through his circle of friends.
“First it was another student at my college and through that she made contact with people I know and began contacting them in other manners,” the stalking victim said. “She began making email accounts in my name and face Facebook accounts in my name with pictures she could have found on line somewhere. Once she began impersonating other people, that was when I realized this was a little more serious.”
Kifer’s teaching license is still listed as active on the Indiana Department of Education web site. The investigation is confidential and the DOE has not reported out on its findings.
The victim has said that he and Kifer are now scheduled to go to court regarding the no contact order in June. No criminal charges have been filed against her at this time.Tags: Beech Grove, Crime, facebook, Indiana, Stalking, student, teacher
